50+ Incident Response Preparedness Checklist Items


The #1 question organizations need to ask themselves is “if someone was in our network, would we be able to tell?” An organization’s ability to answer that single, extremely important question makes all the difference between being able to respond and recover from an incident quickly (and cost-effectively) vs. being notified by a user, or worse yet, by a federal agency, that something is amiss. Be honest with your answer; most organizations are unable to say “yes” to this question, and it rightfully keeps many networking admins or information security professions awake at night.

If you are uncertain how to go about preparing for and detecting an incident on your network, you are certainly not alone, this checklist will get you started. This list contains over 50 items in the following areas that should be prepared ahead of time:
- Configurations
- Logging
- Vendor Information
- Key Personnel

- Detection Monitoring
